About

Marlene, though born and bred Brazilian, has lived more than half her life as a Canadian and proudly calls Calgary, home. Moving here fifteen years ago, with her husband and two daughters, was an easy decision for Marlene, as its small town feeling and proximity to nature makes Calgary a wonderful place to raise a family. Here she has connection to community and volunteers through various organizations. Marlene was not always a Real Estate Advisor, she studied Landscape Technology & Design at Humber College in Toronto, Ontario, receiving her Diploma and President's Letter for Academic Achievement. Owning and operating a thriving residential landscape business led her to residential real estate, where in 2005 she earned her realtor's licence from the Real Estate Council of Alberta. Today Marlene holds the designation of a Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS), making her a perfect fit with her international luxury real estate brokerage, Engel & Volkers.
